It is way too late for me to be recapping MAFS but I am dying to see the immigration thing with Mia which if it happens this episode won’t be until the very end. I’m a few beers in so bear with me. 🙂 I’m mid recap and looking for a place to put this. Seven Year Switch premiered after this. I have zero time to watch this but I really need to set my DVR if I can fit it in.
Amber and Dave
Did I miss Amber and Dave going through the door? It looks like they may consummate their marriage on the first night. The loud ticking Amber’s biological clock didn’t seem to keep them awake all night. They are comfortable together.
It’s time for family brunch. Dave invited his groomsmen over his parents. Amber is suspicious of this decision. Dave says his groomsmen are more like family than his parents. Red flag? Maybe, maybe not. Amber’s mother and sister pry about consummating the marriage. They both try to deflect, because… how rude! Then they say they did not. I am not so sure about that. Amber thinks it is a great match. The mom is down too.
In the pre-honeymoon session, they seem to be saying they did not hook up. The honeymoons are in Cancun, although on the way to the airport, Dave says Tulum. The airport is the same for both, but I’d rather go to Tulum. Shockingly, Amber needs ten billions suitcases to go away for a week.
Danielle and Bobby
These two seem to have the best shot of all the couples on MAFS this season. They both are animal people (despite someone trying to leave a scathing review of my last recap because I didn’t watch the first episode where “Bobby is a duck murderer who doesn’t love dogs.”) and they are clearly going to consummate their marriage on their honeymoon night. Danielle does not want to be carried over the threshold.
It’s time for brunch with the families. The name change thing comes up and she says she doesn’t want to hyphenate, she wants to take Bobby’s last name. She has brothers to carry on the family name. Danielle’s mother is a bit strange. She acted like she couldn’t be bothered to come to the wedding in the last episode. In this episode she’s just peachy with the whole thing and glad she has a new family in Dallas. I am not sure what is going on in this mother-daughter dynamic but something seems off. But everyone faked their way through brunch as is this is the best marriage ever. And for all I know, it may be. But the family dynamic on Danielle’s side didn’t seem genuine.
In the pre-honeymoon session, Bobby said that Danielle is very hard to read sometimes.
Mia and Tristan
I had forgotten that Mia’s dad told Tristan that in his culture (not sure what that is) people do not sleep together unless they know each other very well.
Tristan seems very happy with Mia for now. However he did not offer to carry her over the threshold and he opened the door and went in first! That second part was just shocking! I rarely touch a public door handle in the south and I am at the age of near invisibility as a woman. Men here always open the door for women when approaching a public building’s entrance/exit. I was literally startled that he went through the door first! At any rate, these two are really into each other. Tristan offers to sleep on the couch if it makes her more comfortable. She lets him stay in the bed. They are both fully dressed.
Forced Family Fun
It’s time for family brunch. These two families see the most… incompatible probably isn’t the right word but that is all I have for now. Mia’s father is not particularly thrilled about the whole MAFS process. He immediately asks what they did last night. Did they just go to bed? Tristan’s mom says “Nooooo, they just went to sleep.” Mia’s father is starting to warm to Tristan. At least a little bit. This one went way better than I thought it would.
In the pre-honeymoon session, they seemed to be very excited but not planning on intimacy anytime soon.
Of course in the last seconds of MAFS, we get the following message, “At 8:40 am Mia and Tristan were prevented from boarding their flight. Customs officials have escorted Mia away for questioning. Tristan is currently unaware of Mia’s status and location.”
EDITED WITH SPOILERS! DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW.
Mia Get’s Arrested!
Okay so here is the story. Mia had a felony warrant out for her arrest so when they went through cusoms she was flagged. In December of 2016 her last boyfriend dumped her. She did not take it well. For six months she stalked her ex in Louisiana by calling, texting and showing up at his home and place of employment trying to reconcile. In June he finally decided to contact the police. While the police were at his house taking a report SHE SHOWED UP AGAIN! The cop told her to stop all further contact and she said she would. Two months later it was still happening and the guy called the police again. The police called Mia and warned her once again to stop. She said she would.
The following January, the ex called the police AGAIN. This time, Mia had contacted him on Facebook the day after Christmas to say that she had bought him a Christmas present. Then he was billed by Amazon for an iPhone and a couple of protection plans. In mid January, the ex contacted police AGAIN and explained that Mia had been contacting him nearly daily FOR TWO YEARS.
Mia Is A Stalker! And A Thief!
This along with the Amazon thing resulted in Louisiana filing three stalking charges and one illegal use of an access card charge. The charges were officially filed in FEBRUARY of 2018. At this point all of the MAFS background checks had been completed so they would have no idea.
So just over a month later,on March 27th, the happy couple shows up to the airport to go on their honeymoon and she was arrested at the airport on three counts of stalking (the three he reported) and the Amazon charge. (I have no idea why Louisiana calls it an access card but it is basically using his Amazon account.)
So essentially, this episode may be the last time these two see each other. Is it even possible she didn’t know there was a warrant out for her arrest? Did the police not know where she lives? The stalking happened in Louisiana and she apparently was living in Plano, Texas? Is the end of these two on MAFS?Stay tuned…
